Ways to Fit Walking into A Busy Day

  •  Park your car in the spot farthest from the entrance (to the store or work)  –  Or, even better, walk to the store or work!
  • Choose the stairs instead of the elevator.
  • Add a 10 minute “walking appointment” to your calendar each day (eg. lunch break, after dinner).
  • Schedule business meetings as “walking meetings”  –  Go far a walk instead of sit in a conference room!
